(TruthAndLiberty.com) – On Monday, Sen. Bob Menendez, D-N.J., insisted during a press conference that he was certain he was going to be exonerated on the federal indictment. Menendez, who has served in Congress for decades, insisted that the cash that had been discovered by the FBI in his home came from withdrawals to his personal savings account.
He added that all of the allegations against him were nothing but allegations and that anyone who has known him throughout his five decades in public service would know that he has always fought for what is correct. He further noted that his parents were Cuban refugees and that despite the hardship he has managed to persevere and accomplish everything through hard work despite all those around him who had underestimated him.
He added that he believes that when all the evidence and facts of the case are brought forward he is going to be exonerated and will continue to serve as a senior Senator for New Jersey. However, the Senator did avoid announcing a re-election bid during his statement.
As he pointed out, the justice system could not be replaced by the court of public opinion, and it was not possible for them to push aside the “presumption of innocence for political expediency.”
Menendez also defended his political record in Egypt arguing that throughout his time in the senate, he had defended civil and human rights across the world. He argued that his actions connected to Egypt, much like throughout his career, were completely in the clear and aligned with a push to hold the country accountable for unlawfully detaining American citizens.
